This is short notice, but earlier today I learned the Gold Star Memorial train will make a stop in Southborough this evening. The special passenger coach which bears the name of every soldier, marine, sailor and airman who lost their life while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, was scheduled to pass through town last week as it traveled the Boston-Worcester line, but the run had to be scrapped at the last moment due to mechanical problems.
Mass Bay Commuter Rail says the train will leave Worcester headed inbound at 4:55 pm, putting it in Southborough at 5:21 pm. It will stop at the Southborough Commuter Rail station to let off and take on passengers, and then head on its way into Boston.
